What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:

I was a fan of the Phaze. I really liked the ball motion, but it was a bit over/under for me. It was also a bit too snappy for me on certain patterns. I love dull solids, so I was happy to try the Velocity core with this kind of coverstock.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:

The Phaze II is one of those balls where you throw it the first time and instantly know you love it. The strength, predictability and versatility of this ball is through the roof.

Make no mistake, this ball HOOKS. I mean, most people will be able to use this ball on the heaviest of oil, especially with a bit more surface.

One of my favorite things about the Phaze II was that even though it's really strong, it still got down the lane well. Even on our THS pattern I could stand left, get the ball to the dry and it would get back to the pocket from anywhere.

The Phaze II is a bowling ball that you could have 2 or 3 of. One at OOB finish, one at 4000 polished and one at 1000 grit sanded. You will cover pretty much every condition that is medium oil and above. This is one of the best Storm balls I've ever thrown and that's saying a lot (some of my all-time faves are Storm).

Storm Phase II. Drilled mine pin down. I threw several games with the Phase II on the fresh house shots and the heavier sport shots. It looked very good (maybe need to try a different layout). Once the patterns broke down, it started getting a little too early and for MY game throwing it away from the pocket was going to be a high scoring option. So I took the Phase II and sanded it down with a 2000 abralon pad and Storm Step 2. After doing this, the Phase II saved enough energy to make an aggressive move with a strong hit and continuation through the pins. So this ball as well to all of Storm and Roto Grip equipment surface adjustments can make a HUGE difference. I always try everything possible on surfaces on each and every ball I drill. I'll post another review when I get around to drilling another Phase II. It's going to be a great ball.
